As the govt continues to ignore the crisis in Puerto Rico after #Maria, I urge those affected to prepare for #Florence

It’s a Cat 4-5 & flooding is predicted.

Here’s how to prepare & what to do if you run out of bottled water after.

Please RT this thread— it could save a life.
2/
First—listen to your state & local news. EVACUATE if you’re mandated. Don’t leave your pets behind.

I worked on the rescue efforts after Harvey & Irma. I spoke to people on dying phones who didn’t evacuate. They required rescue from rooftops.
#Florence
3/
If you’re not mandated to evacuate for #HurricaneFlorence, see @NOAA’s list of numbers and supplies you‘ll need
👉nhc.noaa.gov/prepare/ready.…

@Firechatapp is a web app & works when cell towers go down between phones.

Prepare & have 1 gallon/day water supply for 7 days minimum.
After a hurricane, most deaths occur from flooding & unsafe drinking water. 2975 in Puerto Rico is an example of this.
Tap & well water are NOT safe to drink after a flood event. Bacteria, viruses & pathogens are present & will make you sick in just HOURS.

For a hurricane/flood event, here are 5 options for safe drinking water.

BEFORE the event:
1. Buy bottled water— 1 gallon/day/person for 7 days minimum

AFTER the event:
2.Chlorinate the water
3.Iodine tablets
4.Calcium hypochlorite- used in swimming pools
5.Boiling the water
As an engineer, I’ve worked extensively w/water systems in developing countries & used these methods

Adding chlorine to H2O is the best option.
⚠️Bleach must be less than 6 mos old. You MUST let it sit for 1 hour after treating, otherwise it’s toxic

👉bit.ly/1D67fZW
Iodine tablets to treat water can be purchased at a pharmacy or sporting goods store.

⚠️Do NOT have iodine disinfected water with
—Pregnancy
—Thyroid conditions
—Allergy to shellfish

Cautions on iodine:
—Overconsumption is toxic
—Taste is metallic

👉bit.ly/2NutA1u
8/11

Calcium hydpochlorite or pool shock is found in swimming pool supply stores.

⚠️Use caution with this if you have no other options because it takes VERY little to treat. It is DEADLY if overconsumption occurs.

👉bit.ly/1D67fZW
9/11

Boiling water only works if you have a heat source hot enough to boil it for at least 1 minute. I recommend 3 to 5 minutes.

⚠️Caution - this is a remedial method at best. It should be a LAST effort and it will NOT remove all contaminants.

👉bit.ly/2wDr9OT
10/11

Flood waters rapidly multiply with pathogens & water bourne illnesses. Avoid standing in it, if possible. A cut can easily become a life threatening infection.

Wash your hands often & any part of you that must go in flood waters, immediately.

If you’re affected by #HurricaneFlorence prepare for a week MINIMUM. The emergency response of our govt seems to be ‘survival of the fittest’

During the rescue efforts of Harvey & Irma, no one rescuing or in need cared if you were Dem or GOP.

💚Look out for each other
💚Be safe
I’ve signed up again to help again with rescue efforts for hurricanes

55 years ago today, August 28, 1963 in WA DC:

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”—Martin Luther King jr

63 years ago today on August 28, 1955, 14 year old Emmett Till was kidnapped in the middle of night in Mississippi, brutally beaten, murdered & thrown in a river for cat-calling a white woman at a corner store. His killers were acquitted in less than 1 hour.

In 2016, the woman who accused Emmett Till said she had lied in her statements, in court, under oath.
👉vanityfair.com/news/2017/01/h…

52 years later a sign was placed on the spot where Emmett Till’s body was found. It’s been replaced 3 times since for vandalism.

I’m a runner. Mollie Tibbett’s story terrifies me.

Running is such an integral part of me: it’s my passion, it’s empowering & a Huge part of my self care these days
The fact that it’s being politicized loses the lesson: it’s NOT who murdered her, it’s the WHY.

Although men empathize, they’ll never know the ways women/victims must think to protect themselves:

🔹Empty parking lots & elevators after hours
🔹At some places of employment, we need after hour escorts to our cars or the bus
🔹It’s a big reason why we use restrooms in packs
3/
Some safety tips I’ve had to adopt to go on a simple run:

🔹I Never run in the same place from one week to the next, or the same time of day– I mix it up
🔹I Never wear my long hair in a ponytail - too easy to grab
🔹My dog comes with me on all runs– so dogs must be allowed

For 2 years,Trump has called Russian interference a hoax & its investigation a witch hunt.
He eliminated the National Security coordinator position at the NSC.

Russia’s attack was an act of war but Trump& regime attended the NSC election security meeting for less than 30 minutes
Trump admin has no strategy for election security, & no one's in charge
👉nbcnews.com/news/amp/ncna8…

Despite Russian interference and $380M in federal aid
🔹22 states opted out of upgrading voting machines
🔹42 states won’t have new voting equipment by Nov
👉politico.com/story/2018/07/…
Here’s what we can do:

Call your SOS:
🔹Hold them accountable for your state’s election security

Call your reps📲202-224-3121
Ask they pass:
🔹the bipartisan #DETERAct bill for midterms
🔹the #PAVEAct which calls for paper ballots & risk limited audits

Everyday as news comes out that supports the fact that we had a fraudulent election & have an #IllegitimatePresident, the MSM keeps pushing 1 thing: Votes weren’t changed.

This is NOT true.

The votes of MILLIONS were changed bc they were thrown off Russian hacked voter rolls.
The WH is now censoring the free press. They posted a fake version of the #TreasonSummit video & deleted where Putin said he wanted Trump to win & he helped.

The evidence is overwhelming: we have an #IllegitimatePresident installed by Putin & Russia.

👉
Midterms are already actively being hacked by Russia.

We must Demand Congress restore our democratic elections.

If we can mobilize in hours Trump potentially firing Mueller, we can organize an ongoing protest every evening & weekends in every major city.

Russia hacking our elections is a threat to our national security.

Trump & GOP ignore/do Nothing while even more sinister attacks continue.

Since 2015 Russia has breached, hacked & attacked U.S.:
🔹Military
🔹Elections
🔹Utilities
🔹Nuclear plants
🔹Power grids
🔹Aviation

One year ago, @Reince tweeted that the GOP had “a revolutionary data program” resulting in them “carrying WI for first time in 30 years.”

Attached was this article that said these “Data Operations” helped Trump win WI & will used for the 2018 midterms.

👉host.madison.com/ct/news/local/…
Trump won* WI by just 22,748 votes.

200,000+ in WI were unable to vote in 2016.

Along with MI & PA, WI was one of the 3 swing states that gave* the EC to Trump by a scant 78,652 votes.

All 3 States were among the 39 states reported as hacked by Russia.

Exit polls are a scientifically proven litmus test. In 2016, they were off by as high as 10%

Anything above ~2.5% indicates suspect anomalies. It triggers other countries to nullify elections.

In the swing states of MI, PA, & WI—all were all above 3%.
